The Cyber Security Summit is focused on changing the paradigm of how we look at digital space and security. Our mission is to bring together leaders from the government, business, and non-profit sectors to collaborate on digital infrastructure security issues. These important issues have a profound impact on all units of society, from the largest - governments and multinational corporations, to the smallest - store owners and individuals. In an ever increasing digital world, all levels of government and business operations must be reexamined to address growing cyber security threats.
The Cyber Security Summit serves as a platform for the discussion and generation of new knowledge on a topic that is critical to our state's and our nation's future. By fostering the collaboration of the public and private sectors, our goal is to conceive new, innovative countermeasures against cyber security threats.
The inaugural Cyber Security Summit, which took place in October 2011, included key members from both the public and private sectors. Keynote speakers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology gave insightful presentations on topics including "National Strategy for Trusted Identity in Cyber Space" and "Enterprise Risk Management." The Summit also included a discussion panel on "Linking Public and Private Sector Resources to Strengthen Our National Security," bringing together individuals representing Wells Fargo, 3M, the Minnesota Department of Human Services, and the Office of Enterprise Technology.
